I hate those signs on icon climbs. Telling you the next 1 KM is ave 8.6% etc.. Really saps my will..
But what is nice, it says the altitude as well.

@ Brave - that's the clip with the camera placement incident, isn't it?

@ über-grüber - 42/21, big fucking deal. You'll notice most of them aren't completely emaciated, as if the current vogue, so they actually have enough strength to do more than click a gear shifter.

Tony Martin bossed it. Cancellara also in the mix. Froome took 11 seconds out of Nibali. Full results on http://www.steephill.tv/tirreno-adriatico/#spoiler

9.2km on the flat? I shouldn't think there has ever been such a contrast between two consecutive stages.

I'm surprised no ones started specualtion that Froome let nibali get away, to remove some speculation that would have ensued if he'd won.
Bollocks, but Im surprised I haven't read it with the shit some people write online.

Impossible to know, but I wonder if last Spring's Wiggo would have been distanced like Froome yesterday. I don't think Froome is as hard as Wiggins.

Watched the last two hours of TA Stage 6 off a torrent and saw the 27% climb was immediately preceded by the 20% Montegranaro climb where people were already walking and zig-zag-ing hence the utter carnage.
